holds all of those carry states from 2004 and adds new mexico, then wins nevada, colorado and iowa, which are very possible because of hispanics in the west, obama could win nevada and colorado. and then hold iowa, maybe lose ohio, lose virginia, lose florida, could do all of those and still narrowly win. >> okay. let's go to mitt romney. what he needs to get to 270 in the big way. >> so the obvious one for mitt romney is to sweep the big three. if he sweeps 40i, virginia and florida, it's all three of those, he could lose colorado, lose nevada, lose new hampshire, lose wisconsin, lose all of those states, and he would still win, he would get there very narrowly but he would be over 270. >> okay. so you get flohva from mitt romney. but you also have a scenario that he can still win if he takes florida, only. >> yeah. it's a little complicated. but i went back to look and see, can he win with just winning one of those or just two of those three? no question, he could win with two of those three. but if he were to win with just florida, for example, he would have to do it by sweeping
, as you see on your screen, all of john kerry's states from 2008, plus new mexico, and you know, and give ohio to romney, well, we're stuck at 266 for romney, 263 for president obama, and this is very possible. because you have president obama winning in nevada, and then you have colorado with those nine electoral votes, mountain time zone, late closing time of 9:00 eastern time. we could be up until 2:00, 3:00 in the morning waiting for a state like colorado. there's even another scenario if you were to give president obama ohio but mitt romney squeezes out a win in wisconsin which is paul ryan's home state, and give mitt romney iowa, those are 16 electoral votes. and then we're stuck with president obama, 265, mitt romney at 264. and colorado, once again, probably the closest state right now, would be determinative with those nine electoral votes. >> and so what about the latest nbc news poll for colorado's likely voters? as we get to some of these details here, can you go through that and explain the numbers there and the changing from just earlier this month? >> yeah, well just from l
, pennsylvania, new mexico, arizona, where the sides don't agree that their foregone conclusions they're not really spending a great deal of resources. those nine states, they've been consistently those nine states over the course of the year. i think that's one of the things that's most interesting, it's been narrow and consistent throughout the year. >> so andy, this new report that mitt romney and the gop are really doubling and tripling their ad buys in several of the swing states with 24 days to go until the election, how much impact does all this ad money really have on voters? >> well, voters especially in those nine battle ground states that amy mentioned have been inundated with tense of thousands of campaign ads from the spring to the summer and especially now, august, september, october. we're getting to a point where voters are almost saturated and really they can't handle any more. they don't want to see any more of these television ads. the romney campaign is putting in this last-minute blitz on, they are flooding these battle ground states. they are trying to get their
wrapping up one of his fan favorites, "mexico." he is getting the crowd energized here, alex. he's been playing for the past 20 minutes or so. the crowd cheering. they're excited. i'm told president obama just arrived on scene so we're expecting him to speak within the hour. so a lot of energy here in new hampshire. this is of course one of the those key battle ground states, alex. four electoral votes. doesn't sound like a lot but it is a lot in a race that is this close. every single electoral vote will of course matter and carry an immense amount of importance on election day. president obama carried this state back in 2008. this state hasn't been impacted as much by the economic downturn as other states. the unemployment rate is at 5.7%. that is far below the national average. however, mitt romney owns a home here. he was governor of neighboring massachusetts. so he certainly carries a lot of weight here in new hampshire. of course, this state is really known for its independent streak. so both candidates really appealing to that group of voters as well as women and young voters. al
